Deciding to renovate your home can be a daunting task with the plethora of choices available today. Unless you have something exceptionally specific in mind, you can easily be overwhelmed when attempting to pick a style you like and determine all the things that will go with it, such as flooring, paint colors, cabinet styles, furniture and decor accents.
To help you out, here are some suggestions for flooring choices to go with some of the more popular designs.
Grey is one of the hottest home interior colors of the season and a coastal design is right on trend, incorporating driftwood grey hues with hints of blue. You may also see coastal designs gravitating toward whites, greys and mid-ranged stained wood grains.
A natural feel is imperative for this design and, once again, hardwood or wood-look laminate will pull together the perfect look. This style leans heavily on light, weathered hardwoods which are whitewashed or pickled, blond maple and ash, or bamboo.
Contemporary design is all about open space, clean lines, and simplicity. This design typically opts for hard surfaces such as stone or ceramic tile, bamboo, blonde woods like maple or ash, and even espresso colored planks.
Contemporary rooms keep a polished look, so high-gloss hardwoods fit right in. If you really like a softer feel on your feet, carpet tile is an option that may give you what you want but still fit in with the design.
A rustic design juxtaposes organic textures and shapes with natural warmth. As you may have guessed, rustic hand-scraped and distressed hardwoods are a natural fit for this design. Dents and bangs are built-right into the wood to give it a worn-look.
If you’re looking for a more budget-friendly flooring option, you can also find a wood-look laminate that will get the job done.
Traditional decor creates a cozy and comfortable environment; as such, you’ll want to consider a cushy carpet in neutral tones. You might even choose one with a subtle pattern for additional texture. Grey and taupe carpets are especially popular at the moment. Rich-toned hardwood is also a popular selection within traditional design. Walnut, mahogany, cherry, oak - these darker toned woods will bring in additional warmth and a satin or glossy finish will make your floors shine.
The best thing about transitional design is that pretty much anything goes, and because it can be updated indefinitely to reflect what’s trending, it will also be long-lasting.
You can incorporate just about any type of flooring into a transitional design and it will work well so long as the room is balanced with it. You can stick with hardwood of any style or go with carpet. Tile and vinyl can also be just as workable in a transitional space. And of course, laminate is always an option as well.
